Social Policy Specialist (Preparedness, SRSP and Humanitarian Cash Transfers) P4

Switzerland, Geneva, Geneva - UNICEF

UNICEF ECARO is looking to hire a Social Policy Specialist P4, who under the supervision of the Regional Social Policy Advisor will work to improve linkages and address challenges impacting many households at once such as natural hazards, economic crises, and conflict. Specifically, the Social Policy Specialist (Social Protection in Emergencies) supports country offices and the regional office to model approaches, conduct analysis and advocate for better preparedness to enable systems - existing or new social protection or emergency programmes in the region - to be ready to accommodate new populations and needs as a result of a shock2022-08-11T07:00:00ZProgramme and Policy|Social Policy553924 For every child, Deliver Eliminating child poverty and ensuring access to social protection have been recognized as critical priorities of the Agenda 2030. An explicit requirement to measure and monitor multidimensional child poverty is included under SDG 1.1.2, and similarly, the need to accelerate progress around public spending for poverty reduction under SDG 1.a.2, and SDG 1.b.1 for which UNICEF has recently become a custodian. The effective scale-up of social protection, with a specific attention to children, is included as part of ensuring access to social protection, a core target of SDG 1 (Elimination of poverty), and SDG 10 (Reduced Inequalities). Moreover, social protection is also an accelerator for multiple other goals. Addressing the multiple and compounding deprivations experienced by children requires an explicit commitment to understand their drivers and to scale-up comprehensive strategies to address them. The full realization of the right of children of access to social protection and adequate standard of living will not only ensure that every child lives free of poverty, but also prevent those at risk or vulnerable to poverty due to exclusion and discrimination, or facing environmental and conflict-related risks, from falling into poverty. Reducing child poverty, enhancing access to gender-transformative, and inclusive social protection, promoting efficiency, transparency and equity of financing, while strengthening capacities at subnational level, including in urban contexts, is critical. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development for every child. UNICEF has articulated its contribution to this agenda and added value across various instruments including, the Social Protection Strategic Framework, the Call for Action on Inclusive Recovery and roadmap, the Urban Evaluation and Management Response, the social protection commitments to the Core Commitments on Children (CCS), as well as - most recently - in the new Goal Area 5 of UNICEF's Strategic Plan 2022-2025, ?Every Child has Access to Inclusive Social Protection and Lives Free of Poverty?. UNICEF's regional office for Europe and Central Asia (ECARO) is responsible for providing technical support, quality assurance, and strategic guidance to 22 country offices. The Social Policy and Economic Analysis section engages in diverse contexts ? high, middle, and low income countries; conflict-affected and stable ? providing guidance on social protection, child poverty, public finance for children, and local governance. In recent years, UNICEF ECARO has scaled up programming in the areas of shock-responsive social protection and humanitarian cash transfers. Though coverage of social protection programmes in the region is generally higher than average and social protection systems in many countries are well-developed, the region is exposed to a wide range of shocks and stressors that point to the need to improve the way systems respond during an emergency. In recent years, countries in the region have been impacted by natural disaster including earthquakes (e.g., Croatia, Turkey) and floods (e.g., Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kazakhstan). COVID-19 took a toll across the region, both directly and through decreased economic activity. Conflict has impacted the region both directly (Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict, Ukraine war and displacement) and indirectly (Syrian refugee crisis in Turkey, Afghan refugees in Central Asia). The current economic crisis is having a significant impact on the region, and particularly on Central Asian countries and the Caucasus. At a regional level, UNICEF has responded by scaling up capacity development and support to country staff and governments on areas related to shock response and humanitarian cash transfers. However, there are still significant gaps and support needs that require dedicated expertise. Under the general supervision and guidance of the Regional Advisor ? Social Policy and Economic Analysis, the Social Policy Specialist (Social Protection in Emergencies) works to improve linkages and address challenges impacting many households at once such as natural hazards, economic crises, and conflict. Specifically, the Social Policy Specialist (Social Protection in Emergencies) supports country offices and the regional office to model approaches, conduct analysis and advocate for better preparedness to enable systems - existing or new social protection or emergency programmes in the region - to be ready to accommodate new populations and needs as a result of a shock. S/he also supports country offices to design, oversee the implementation, monitor, evaluate and improve the delivery of UNICEF's humanitarian cash transfer programme(s) in the region; ensures that country teams (social policy, operations, and relevant sectors) have the appropriate skills and knowledge to design and implement HCT operations; and helps to solidify UNICEF's position as a global leader on HCT within the ECA region. How can you make a difference? The Social Policy Specialist is responsible for the following functions:1. Shock-responsive social protection2. Humanitarian cash transfers3. Cross-cutting social policy areas/operational and management tasks Specifically, the Social Policy Specialist (Social Protection in Emergencies) performs: Shock responsive social protection? Develop a regional SRSP/HCT strategy, including a regional Capacity Development strategy targeting both UNICEF staff and key government partners? Advises and supports country offices on minimum preparedness requirements related to both social protection and humanitarian cash transfers.? Provide support and technical assistance to COs at all stages of implementation - from planning and design to in-country implementation support, undertaking of risk assessments, monitoring, coordination with national social protection and cash working groups, documentation and revision of processes (SOPs and/or operational guidance)? Promotes the strengthening of a shock-responsive social protection system. Supports country offices to apply evidence and appropriate advocacy messaging across the entire spectrum of social protection from a risk perspective, including inter alia: evidence and analysis; contingency planning; strengthening horizontal and vertical coordination between social protection, emergency response; and humanitarian principles, commitments and links between social protection and Humanitarian Cash Transfers.? Supports dialogue, convenes and coordinates with key players in the region, including donor organizations, civil society, and other international organizations (UN and beyond). This includes, where applicable, participation in regional coordination activities.? Conducts operational analysis of the SPiE/HCT programmes, identifying areas for improvement, resolution of implementation bottlenecks, provide quality assurance and identify solutions such as design improvements, additional trainings and technical support.? Supports country offices to improve the quality of MIS and other key operational elements of social protection programmes. Humanitarian Cash Transfers? Provides technical inputs on the country offices' and regional strategic positioning on cash in emergencies.? Builds the operational capacity of both country teams and governments to design and implement all aspects of HCT programmes.? Support country offices to conduct operational analysis of cash transfer programmes, including registration, payment, verification exercises, etc., to identify areas of poor performance, bottlenecks, and identify solutions.? Liaises regularly with all key organizational stakeholders ? internal and external - through the established coordination mechanisms to help shape the global HCT response and ensure it reflects the ECAR context.? Contributes substantially to drafting and disseminates/ensures take-up in country offices of UNICEF's HCTs-related guidance and tools as well as, where appropriate, inter-agency strategies and operational guidelines.? Documents ECAR's field experience with HCTs, including new models of implementation and programmatic approaches, joint programmes delivery and coordination and others for subsequent dissemination.? Produces knowledge management products for cash transfer programmes documenting good practices and lessons learned.? Ensures that all risk-related systems are maintained and risk mitigation measures are in place per corporate HCT risk management processes.? Support country offices to understand and report against HPM indicators, SitReps, etc.? Undertake in-country surge assignments as requested by COs to support implementation of SPiE. Cross-cutting social policy areas? Supports resource mobilization and partnership activities at the country, multi-country, and regional level, including development and/or review of proposals and support to donor reporting on SPiE activities.?

Chief Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation, (P-4), Mexico City, Mexico [Temp Appointment]

Mexico, México, Mexico City - UNICEF

The Chief Planning, Montoring and Evaluation is responsible for preparing, executing, managing, and implementing a variety of technical tasks to contribute to planning, monitoring implementation, oversight and reporting to ensure effectiveness and contribute to results. The incumbent is also responsible for supporting Knowledge Management and Evaluation within the Country Office. UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up. For every child, love The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does ? in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life ? in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions ? her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education, and protection of a society's most disadvantaged citizens ? addressing inequity ? not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. Therefore, the focus on equity is vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations. Mexico is a country of origin, transit, and destination for migrant children from the countries of northern Central America, seeking safety and opportunity in Mexico or the United States. These are children fleeing from gang-related and gender-based violence, organized crime, extortion, poverty and limited access to education and social services. They have been repeatedly exposed to threats, intimidation, and insecurity in a lawless environment. Many also want to be reunited with their families who reside in the United States. UNICEF is supporting state and local authorities in the rapid identification, registration and care of unaccompanied and separated children and adolescents who have entered the country or are moving through Mexico on both the northern and southern borders. UNICEF is providing technical assistance to child protection, nutrition and education authorities to implement standard procedures and case management.
